Adopt-a-Trail Workday (Paw Paw)

Saturday, August 22, 2015, 9:00 AM – around 1:30 PM

We will be clearing our adopted trails (Boardwalk Loop, Weston Lake Loop Trail, Oakridge Trail and Sims Trail) prior to Labor Day weekend.  Though the weather will be warm, trail-clearing duties in August usually focus on lighter activities, including cutting back switchcane.  There are always some ripe paw paw to sample as a trail snack too.

We will meet at the Visitor Center at 9 AM and will finish in the early afternoon.  Insect repellent, work gloves, light hiking boots, plenty of water, and a snack are recommended.  If you have loppers, long-handled shears (good for switch cane) or bow saws, bring them along.  Friends members and Park staff will provide gear if you do not have any.  Please contact John Grego (jrgrego@sc.rr.com; 803-331-3366) if interested.
